Starborn #7-Advanced Review
Published on Tuesday, June 7, 2011 by

Stan Lee presents: Starborn #7 the Chris Roberson written, Khary Randolph arted sci-fi adventure. This is the latest in the line of Stan Lee non-Marvel collaborations. Stan Lee is known as the writer, editor, and publicity wrangling Marvel mogul. Roberson comes from a different background with iZombie, Cinderella: From Fabletown with Love, and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Roberson’s writing credits are diverse but Vertigo heavy.

The creative team is telling the story of Benjamin Warner, a regular guy dreaming of becoming a writer. He realizes his novel is not just in his imagination, rather memories of his home world. In that respect this is a very common story starter. The last episode of a Spiderman series leaps to mind, as does memorable Stargate and Supernatural episodes.

When a childhood friend comes back inot his life, Benamin’s dead-end job looks safer than the new adventures he is about to run toward.

In issue #7, expresses fantasy and speculation that is common to many adopted children. Instead of knowing his parents he envisioned his father as something larger than life. The coloring difference between his past and his fantasy is interesting, especially since his fantasy is closer to his Starborn life.

The quality of the art and colors should be familiar to Boom!natics. This books looks every bit as polished as any title from the line up.

Two main characters have an interesting, and spirited discussion, over tyrant versus leader.

This sci-fi comic has interesting and colorful humanoids. The battle from the past several issues is world spanning and on going. That provides back drop for a variety of adventures, and will be heading back toward Earth.

This is a prelude issue setting up changing events. It feels like a world spanning fight is about to hit.
